best bar in Amsterdam

I write for a living [well… kind of], so you’ll forgive the lack of a 3-part setup here.

all I want to say is this bar – Cafe Hoppe – is the best bar in Amsterdam. and you go to Amsterdam, you’d be sore if you missed it.

it’s split into two, one for the more respectable patrons, and through an almost-secret wall, is a proper Dutch ‘brown bar‘, where the drinkers drink. good beer, boisterous crowd and none of this coffeeshop bullshit.

there… that’s kind of like 3 parts.
